This Cajun Chicken Pasta is a copycat recipe from Chili’s menu. Bite sized pieces of chicken are coated with cajun seasoning along with some garlic and umami powder (or seasoned salt) then simmered in heavy cream with peppers, onions and mushrooms then tossed with cooked pasta.
This make at home take out pasta dish is rich and delicious and a perfect celebration recipe to keep on hand. Cajun Chicken Pasta is quick and easy comfort food at its finest!
All it takes is a little cream and pasta to make Grumpy happy!
As most of you know by now, Grumpy is and always has been a picky eater. He always complains about me making chicken whenever it is on the menu. He would rather see fish or red meat on the table.
Most of the time I don’t give him a choice. Since I am the cook, I just make what I want. And, that is exactly what I did when I made this Cajun Chicken Pasta. I didn’t even bother to tell him what I was making and just made it and put his portion in the microwave until he was ready to eat it.
After he finally decided to eat dinner, I asked him what he thought. I thought this dish was absolutely delicious and ate every bit of my portion. He actually gave me a thumbs up on the dish, so this is a definite winner to try.
